Caught the tail end of 2001: A Space Odyssey last night.
NEVER AGAIN!!!!! Definitely too slow and 60's acid trip-y for my taste. All I know is that there's a giant fetus floating in space and a VHS tape is magical and visits people.
Wow. Tremendous disappointment. First off, the Mom, who got nominated for a supporting actress nod...really, are there that few good actresses in supporting parts? She is in 1/3rd of the flick and barely registers. The best actor of the bunch gets snuffed 20 minutes in. The main protagonist is such a blank slate for the majority of the flick. Seriously...this movie blows.
THIS...was awesome. I thought it was gonna be a mess, but it was completely dark, well, at least till the cop out ending. Stil...FUN. I just got kinda sick of seeing Jonah Hill BARFING a LOT.
Between this and Death race 2000 Universal must have a plan. 'Lets release horrible direct to dvd sequels to flicks folks love....to make them realize how magic the junk food movies were.
I am a huge fan of Smoking Aces. In my opinion, it's Carnahans 2nd best flick(NARC is amazing). This is a pale imitation. From the crappy acting(buncha jobbers and some folks who should know better, you hearing me Tom Berenger????) to the stilted dialogue/story...I love the original Smokin Aces....BECAUSE you care about EVERYONE in the movie. This...is caca.
